" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

(From the ‘e-Thursday’ section of the ‘Business Week’ supplement of the ‘Irish Independent’ , 21st August 2008.)

This blog was listed as one of the 'Finalists' in the '2016 current affairs/politics' category of the Littlewoods Ireland blog awards - but we didn't win the award. But not to worry -thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again the next time!

Two of our many readers in the Ballyfermot area of Dublin , where Provisional Sinn Féin's Aengus 'CartridgeWorld' Ó Snodaigh rules the roost , have approached me with undeniable pictorial proof of , to say the least , shady dealings involving Mr Ó Snodaigh on stage and also showing him , again in disguise , handing over printed material on a mountain top to a woman.
We are 100% positive that the post re same which we will publish tomorrow evening - no sooner than that , as our legal department has not yet finished treble-checking it - will put a whole new slant on 'Inkgate'......

.....and , in an unusual move , I will be present and available for interviews at the Spire , in O'Connell Street , Dublin , tomorrow (Wednesday 29th February 2012) at 11.30am , for a while , before I move off to 'set up camp' outside the gates of Leinster House in Kildare Street. In between answering questions in relation to our intended 'InkGate' post I will be taking part in this protest - I will be taking questions both before and after the protest , but not during it (as I will be shouting obscenities at the feckers inside !) , so be first in the queue if you want to get your hands dirty re 'TonerGate' , 'cause you know what they say about the early bird : it gets a pain in its belly from all the worms.... !
But seriously - see you tomorrow , in Dublin City Centre , and then here , on this blog , tomorrow evening , for 'CartridgeGate : Revelations'......

Thanks for reading,
